Isaiah 11:1-3

1 ¶ And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD, 3 and shall make him of quick olfaction in the fear of the LORD; and he shall not judge according to the sight of his eyes, neither reprove according to the hearing of his ears:

Acts 2:1-47

1 ¶ And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 ¶ (And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.) 6 Now at this sound, the multitude came together and were confounded because each one heard them speak in his own tongue. 7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these who speak Galilaeans? 8 And how do we hear each one speak in our own tongue, with which we were brought up? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites and the dwellers in Mesopotamia and in Judaea and Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, in Egypt and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12 And they were all amazed and were in doubt, saying one to another, What does this mean? 13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. 14 ¶ Then Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea and all ye that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known unto you and hearken to my words; 15 for these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; 18 and for certain on my slaves and on my handmaids I will pour out in those days of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy; 19 and I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath: blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke; 20 the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood before that great and notable day of the Lord shall come; 21 and it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know, 23 him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken and by wicked hands have crucified and slain, 24 whom God has raised up, having loosed the pains of death because it was not possible for him to be held by it. 25 For David speaks concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved, 26 therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover even my flesh shall rest in hope 27 because thou wilt not leave my soul in Hades, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30 Therefore being a prophet and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne; 31 he, seeing this before, spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that his soul was not left in Hades, neither did his flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus God has raised up, of whom we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore being raised up by the right hand of God and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this which ye now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand 35 until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37 ¶ Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized each one of you into the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted, saying, Be saved from this perverse generation. 41 So that those who gladly received his word were baptized, and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42 ¶ And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers. 43 And fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 And all that believed were together and had all things common 45 and sold their possessions and property and distributed them to everyone, as each one had need. 46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food together with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 praising God and having grace with all the people. And the Lord added to the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} daily such as should be saved.

Acts 2:38

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized each one of you into the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:26-27

26 ¶ And likewise also the Spirit helps our weakness; for we know not how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself makes entreaty for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 But he that searches the hearts knows what is the desire of the Spirit, that according to the will of God, he makes entreaty for the saints.

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

1 Corinthians 12:27-30

27 ¶ Now ye are the body of Christ and members in particular. 28 And God did set certain ones in the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}: first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that faculties, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? do all have faculties? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

Romans 12:6

6 So that having different gifts according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, according to the measure of faith; 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one to profit with. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit a word of wisdom; to another, a word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another, faith by the same Spirit; to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 to another, the operation of miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, discerning of spirits; to another, different kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues: 11 one and the same Spirit operates all these things, dispersing to each one his own gift as he wills.

1 Timothy 4:14-16

14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which is given unto thee to prophesy, through the laying on of the hands of the elders. 15 Occupy thyself in these things with care, for in this is everything, that thy profiting may be manifest unto all. 16 Take heed unto thyself and unto the doctrine; be diligent in this, for in doing so thou shalt both save thyself and those that hear thee.

1 Corinthians 12:1-31

1 ¶ Now regarding spiritual things, brothers, I would not have you ignore them. 2 Ye know that when ye were Gentiles, ye went, even as ye were led, unto the dumb idols. 3 Therefore I give you to understand, that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus anathema and that no one can call Jesus Lord but by the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there is dispersal of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there is dispersal of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there is dispersal of operations, but it is the same God who works all in each one. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one to profit with. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit a word of wisdom; to another, a word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another, faith by the same Spirit; to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 to another, the operation of miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, discerning of spirits; to another, different kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues: 11 one and the same Spirit operates all these things, dispersing to each one his own gift as he wills. 12 ¶ For as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also the Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body, whether we are Jews or Greeks, whether we are slaves or free, and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the smelling be? 18 But now God has set the members each one of them in the body, as it has pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now they are indeed many members, yet but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee; nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 For those members of the body, which seem to be weaker, are much more necessary; 23 and those members of the body which we think to be more vile, these we dress with more abundant honour; and those in us who are more indecent have more honesty. 24 For those in us who are more honest need nothing, but God has ordered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that one which lacked, 25 that there should be no contradiction in the body, but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer together; or if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice together. 27 ¶ Now ye are the body of Christ and members in particular. 28 And God did set certain ones in the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}: first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that faculties, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? do all have faculties? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But earnestly pursue the best gifts, and yet I show unto you a more excellent way.

1 Corinthians 14:1-40

1 ¶ Follow after charity and earnestly pursue spiritual gifts, but above all, that ye may prophesy. 2 For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not unto men, but unto God, for no one understands him, even though by the Spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But he that prophesies speaks unto men for edification and exhortation and comfort. 4 He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself, but he that prophesies edifies the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}. 5 I would that ye all spoke with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied, for greater is he that prophesies than he that speaks with tongues, unless he interprets, that the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} may receive edifying. 6 ¶ Now, brothers, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you unless I speak to you either with revelation or with knowledge or with prophecy or with doctrine? 7 And even things without life giving sound, whether flute or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is played or harped? 8 For if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? 9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue a clear and definite word, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air. 10 There are many kinds of distinct voices in the world, and nothing is dumb. 11 Therefore, if I ignore the virtue of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaks as a barbarian, and he that speaks shall be a barbarian unto me. 12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye desire the things of the Spirit, earnestly pursue excellence unto the edification of the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}. 13 Therefore, let him that speaks in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15 ¶ What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also; I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. 16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupies the place of the ignorant say, Amen, at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understands not what thou sayest? 17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified. 18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all; 19 yet in the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} I would rather speak five words with my understanding, that I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. 20 Brothers, be not children in understanding, howbeit in malice be ye children; but in understanding be perfect. 21 ¶ In the law it is written, In other tongues and with other lips I will speak unto this people; and yet for all that, they will not hear me, saith the Lord. 22 Therefore, tongues are for a sign, not to those that believe, but to those that do not believe; but prophecy is not for those that do not believe, but for those who believe. 23 If, therefore, the whole congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} is come together into one place and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? 24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that does not believe or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all; 25 for the secrets of his heart are made manifest; and so falling down on his face, he will worship God, declaring that God is indeed in you. 26 ¶ How is it then, brothers? when ye come together, each one of you has a psalm, has doctrine, has tongues, has revelation, has interpretation. Let all things be done unto edification. 27 If anyone speaks in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. 28 But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silence in the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}, and let him speak to himself and to God. 29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the others judge. 30 If any thing is revealed to another that sits by, let the first be silent. 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be exhorted. 32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33 For God is not the God of disorder, but of peace, as in all the congregations {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} of the saints. 34 ¶ Let your women keep silence in the congregations {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}, for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be in subjection, as also saith the law. 35 And if they desire to learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home, for it is a dishonest thing for women to speak in the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out one}. 36 ¶ What? Did the word of God come out from you? or did it come unto you only? 37 If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. 38 But anyone that ignores them shall be ignored. 39 Therefore, brothers, earnestly pursue prophecy and do not forbid to speak with tongues. 40 But let all things be done decently and in order.

Romans 12:6-8

6 So that having different gifts according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, according to the measure of faith; 7 or ministry, in serving; or he that teaches, in doctrine; 8 he that exhorts, in exhortation; he that gives, let him do it in simplicity; he that presides, in earnest care; he that shows mercy, in cheerfulness.

1 Peter 4:10

10 Let each one according to the gift that he has received, administer it unto the others, as a good steward of the diverse graces of God.

1 Corinthians 12:8-10

8 For to one is given by the Spirit a word of wisdom; to another, a word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another, faith by the same Spirit; to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 to another, the operation of miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, discerning of spirits; to another, different kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues:
